Botas De Barro
Generations Of Hard Work
Nicola Thornton, originally from Sheffield, has called Toro her home for the last 20 years. In that time she’s amassed a dazzling portfolio of independently owned wineries that she now distributes worldwide.
We’re beginning our collaboration with one of her own creations; Botas de Barro, literally ‘dirty boots’, which is an homage to the generations of farmers that have tended the treasured old vines of their regions.
RUEDA - Verdejo
60+ year old bush vines, planted in limestone rich, pebbly soils, cool ferment, no oak. Crisp, highly aromatic with intense lime and tropical notes.
TORO - Tempranillo
60+ year old bush vines, 720m above sea level, hand-harvested, 5 months in American & French oak (50% new). Textbook characters of liquorice, blackberry, and violet framed by subtle oak.
ALMANSA - Garnacha Tintorera
70+ year old vines, 4 months in French Oak (15% new). Deeply coloured wine from one of the few red-fleshed varieties, packed with smoky wild berry flavours.
